Week in Review 2016: #21

Where to begin?!? We were out of town last week so I was unable to post. We had a much-needed vacation to Myrtle Beach. It was very cloudy and chilly for most of our trip, though the sun did come out the day we were leaving. Go figure. We played on the beach, at the pool, went to Medieval Times, played miniature golf, and saw some alligators. I have too many pictures to show from the trip (over 200... eek), so I have been blogging about each activity separately, as my blog tends to be more of a journal than anything else. I have only gotten as far as our day on the beach, which you can read about here.

We arrived home on Saturday afternoon, made it to church on Sunday, and began our week with a end-of-year celebration at gymnastics where Bridget and George both received their medals. Every year, they give the little gymnasts medals. Not for anything specific, but just for having a fun year. It makes them feel special. The older kids, of course, receive medals for other reasons. 

These two have been asking about their medals since January. They were so excited. 

On the homeschool front, while most families seem to be wrapping things up for the school year, we're still moving right along. The activity of seeing the alligators in Myrtle Beach was a field trip for the kids and they actually learned quite a bit about all sorts of reptiles. Bridget and George both touched a turtle, and Bridget touched a snake and an alligator. George is terrified of snakes, and he was also afraid that the alligator was going to bite his finger off, so naturally he refused to touch either of them. He cautiously kept his eyes on the alligator while I snapped this picture.

My husband was nice enough to snap a picture of me and the children in front of the flamingos. The children were all fascinated by the them so it was the best opportunity to get them all smiling.
